166. AERIE   
124'0"  2001
Aerie replaces a same-named yacht in the 100-foot range. Jonathan Quinn Barnett worked with Delta's in-house design team on the stying of the yacht and also fashioned the interior, highlighted by two eagles fashioned of marble and petrified wood. B: Delta Marine, USA; N: Delta Design Group; H: Fiberglass; E: 2/1,800-hp DDC-MTUs 

167. FROSTY'S SLEIGH     
124'0"  1983
After adding a sky lounge, an aft-deck extension, and a new bow a few years ago--and having an absolute blast onboard since then--a couple from Oklahoma have decided they'd like a bigger yacht than Frosty's Sleigh. So they're selling this eponymous vessel for $3.95 million. B: Azimut, Italy; N: Stefano Righini; H: Aluminum; E: unknown 

168. GALE WINDS  
124'0"  1998
Minibars in the staterooms keep guests from sneaking into the galley in the middle of the night--although if they do, the onboard gym will keep them from packing on the pounds. B: Delta Marine, USA; N: Delta Design Group; H: Fiberglass; E: 2/1,450-hp Detroit Diesels 

169. LADY LINDA   
124'0"  1998
Because the owners of this Delta put an emphasis on entertaining, Lady Linda features cus- tom storage for more than 400 bottles of wine and 200 glasses in the entry foyer and dining saloon. And to ensure every soiree is elegant, there are crystal chandeliers and hand-painted gold and copper-leafed ceilings. B: Delta Marine, USA; N: Delta Design Group; H: Fiberglass; E: 2/1,800-hp Detroit Diesels 

170. MIMI       
124'0"  1998
Mimi is one of a handful of yachts Delta launched in this size range. Like her sisters, she features superb woodwork inside. Her owner may sell her in the near future since he also owns Kakapo (no. 162) and is taking delivery of Anson Bell (no. 60). B: Delta Marine, USA; N: Delta Design Group; H: Fiberglass; E: 2/1,450-hp Detroit Diesels 

171. DESTINY          
124'0"  1989
Destiny is one of the most successful charter yachts in the American charter fleet. The Bahamas and Caribbean are her preferred winter cruising grounds, while New England is her summertime home. B: Broward Marine, USA; N: Builder; H: Aluminum; E: 2/1,450-hp Detroit Diesels 

172. SEABIRD            
124'0"  1989
This Broward has been taking a Midwesterner and his family on cruises for several years now. B: Broward Marine, USA; N: Builder; H: Aluminum; E: 2/1,450-hp Detroit Diesels 

173. WEHR NUTS                 
124'0"  1999
Some people might say the owner is nuts for wanting a large saltwater aquarium, built into a bulkhead, to be the focus of his yacht's saloon. We say it's a great conversation piece. B: Christensen Shipyards, USA; N: Builder; H: Fiberglass; E: 2/2,000-hp DDC-MTUs 

174. BLACKHAWK                 
123'0"  1970
William Wirtz, owner of the Chicago Blackhawks hockey team, once said, "The harder you work, the more luck you get." Judging from the fact that he's been enjoying this yacht in southern climes for many years now, we'd say he's definitely one lucky guy. B: Feadship/De Vries Scheepsbouw, Holland; N: H.W. De Voogt & Zoon; H: Steel; E: 2/1,115-hp Caterpillars 

175. CAPRICE           
123'0"  1994
Caprice is available on the charter circuit for $39,500 per week in the Bahamas. She occasionally tows a 34-foot Intrepid. B: Oceanco, South Africa; N: Gerhard Gilgenast; H: Aluminum; E: 2/1,072-hp Deutz-MWMs 

176. CAROLINIAN                
123'0"   1982
The Americans who named their Feadship Lady Carolina a year ago sold her to another American, who we hear want to trade up to a larger yacht. B: Feadship/C. Van Lent en Zonen, Holland; N: H.W. De Voogt & Zoon; H: Steel; E: unknown 

177. LADY FLORENCE      
123'0"  1999
A couple from New England cruise both local waters and southern climes onboard this lady, named for the wife. B: Trident Shipworks, USA; N: Wesley Carr; H: Fiberglass; E: 2/2,400-hp Detroit Diesels 

178. POLAR BEAR  
123'0"  1988
There's a fireplace (for show only) in this yacht's saloon and both temperature-controlled and room-temperature wine racks in her galley. Last year Polar Bear was on the market because her owners also have a 173-footer (see no. 29). We haven't been able to determine whether she is sold. B: Sterling Yacht, Japan; N: Builder; H: Fiberglass; E: 2/890-hp MTUs 

179. AIRWAVES           
122'0"  2000
This pilothouse motoryacht was launched as Alexis but quickly put on the market and sold because her owner wanted to build a larger yacht. The current owners have her available for charter in the Caribbean this winter for $49,500 per week. She sometimes tows a 32-foot Intrepid. B: Palmer Johnson, USA; N: Tom Fexas Yacht Design; H: Aluminum; E: 2/1,850-hp DDC-MTUs 

180. BON BON             
122'0"  1993/1998
Overing Yacht Designs and Palmer Johnson collaborated on a 10-foot extension in 1998 for this lady, owned by a major name in the yacht-brokerage biz. Bon Bon, which can carry a helicopter and is for sale for $7.8 million, was in the Caribbean last winter and New England during the summer. B: Flagship Marine Co., USA; N: Overing Yacht Designs; H: Aluminum; E: 2/1,040-hp Detroit Diesels
